Hiwassee Island, located in the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge at the confluence of the Hiwassee and Tennessee Rivers, is the premier wintering observation site in the southeast for the magnificent Sandhill Crane. The land encircling the confluence of the Hiwassee and Tennessee Rivers, where the Hiwassee Refuge is located, is steeped in Cherokee history. This land lies near the center of the ancestral land of the Cherokee Nation that once encompasses portions of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
